I wanted to love without reservation.
You came and spoke of boundries
As if they held every vital morsel
of living, breathing necessity.
(Some things grow
like an inbound tree
stretching their arms
through the soul.)
Your belief in impossibility plunged into me,
And I pleaded for you to dive in after
now that my heart’s a sea
of joyous energy,
the waves that could carry me into eternity.
However, forever was
the only boundry
that could not
I will live on as your absence
deepens toward the horizon,
time the healer watching over.
(A heart must contract
before it can expand.)
